Nephrology in Singapore offers lithotripsy for $350 and kidney transplants from living donors
In Singapore, diagnostic nephrology consists of kidney biopsy, MRI, CT, and PET helping detect malfunctioning and preserve a kidney in timely manner. Treatment prices are higher than in India, Thailand, or Malaysia due to improved infrastructure and more advanced surgical equipment. Specifically, shock wave lithotripsy in case of kidney stone removal would cost you about $350 per session that would last about half an hour.
Singapore hospitals specialize in treating:
- urinary stones through lithotripsy (electromagnetic waves)
- chronic renal failure with haemodialysis, or
- chronic renal failure with with kidney transplants from living donors
